Theater Arts (Senior)


What is your dream job and why?

I would love to run my own theater. If I own the stage, then I can keep creating the work I want to no matter what.

Name an artist or work of art that fascinates you and has inspired you. Why?

Lin Manuel Miranda is a giant inspiration to me. The impact he has had on the theater world bringing issues of representation to a mainstream commercial theater is so important and necessary. It shows the broadening interest in different types of stories for the stage that have historically been absent. I feel like he is paving the way for someone like me to succeed in the theater.

What personal goal do you have for this academic year?

I hope to continue to deepen my love for the craft and end my final quarters at UCSC with some dope art.

What three words would you describe yourself with?

Enthusiastic, Passionate, and Excited.
